    Nice find.

    I agree with almost the entire thing.

    If this team can show a defense that can shut some teams down I have no problem with this opinion.

    I'm not one that gets all emothional and antsy about things but damn... I'm effing amped about this season. I know the offense can handle things and the d is just a step away from crushing bodies.

    I'm a cynical muffhugger, but I want to believe in this team. If the D goes out week 1 and 2 and kills bodies I have no reason not to believe we have a hell of a season coming up.

    I would like to see us have our first winning season in franchise history, before I start throwing around the "D" word. We're putting the cart before the horse with this one.

    You got that right. It's such a cliche, but really, defense wins championships. We've seen it over and over and over again.

    If Frank Bush's squad starts putting fear into other teams, then we can start talking about a dynasty.

    Give me a House of Pain D and I'm happy. Mario and Cush and Ryans... hells yes. Kill bodies. That's a simple request right? Break muffhuggers (TM dreadhead) and kill bodies... easy and beautifully effing illustrated.

    What that guy said...

    Seriously... what else is there? Secondary? Yeah... If the line plays out well this year and the LBs blow up I think we can start celebrating a little bit. I don't care what anyone says, the Offense is there. Schaub stays healthy and we're blowing the damn scoreboard up.

    Defense baby... we get that defense on and these guys can't be stopped.

    Push Peyton's face into the turf 4 or 5 times in a game... that's money baby.

    Dynasty?! Don't talk about dynasty's! Are you kidding me? Dynasty?! I'm just hoping we can have a winning season!

    IMO, putting the words dynasty and Texans together is like trying to force two magnets together. They do not belong together. Ask me after five to ten years worth of consistant winning seasons and I might give you the time of day.

    Dynasty? Ha, freakin offseason!

    People might balk at speaking of a dynasty for a team who's never even had a winning season. But, people around the NFL have a lot of good things to say about our team. It was only a few weeks ago that Dungy was saying we were only a "confidence piece" away.

    I don't think many would be surprised if it happened.

    And there should be people talking about the Texans possibilities this season, just without using the word dynasty.

    Jeez the bandwagon fills up and empties quickly around these parts. Dynasty? We've never won 9 games. We've never made it to the playoffs. How in the world can you throw around that word?

    Put me in this camp. Although I very hopeful that it could happen one day, it's way too premature to even use the "d" word.

    After we win the SB this year, it'll be too early to start talking about dynasty.
